Not all Italians are in

Not all Italians are in the mob. Salon has a piece on the new Italian-American Reader, which features writing from Don DeLillo, Frank Lentricchia, John Ciardi, and others. The gist of it is that Italian-Amerians have been "minstrelized". [Click through the ads to read it.] I think the important sub-point of the piece is that not all Italian-Americans write about Italian-Americans, cf. Delillo, whose books are less Italian-themed than, say, Richard Price's.
